Suspense movie with sensational cars and an experienced Dennis Hooper
7 July 2006 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film deals about an intrigue involves various family members : son (Chris Carmack) , father (Will Patton) , adoptive father (Fred Ward) and an ex-con grandfather called Ronnie (Dennis Hooper). After thirty years he goes out from behind bars and arise the problems but the reckoning starts with the subsequent revenge . He enlists his grandson to execute the vengeance against the policeman and now a magnate who put him into prison . As he recruits his descendant to exact vendetta on Darryl , the cop who put him behind bars .

This exciting picture blends action-packed , car racing , pursuits , rip-roaring and a little bit of violence . From the beginning to finish the action pace is unstopped , the movie provides fast and furious entertainment for action lovers , in fact the movie is produced by Rob Cohen , a specialist in action films . Film is starred by agreeable young people as an impulsive Chris Carmack and a gorgeous Nadine Velazquez ; and magnificent veterans as Dennis Hooper , Will Patton and Fred Ward ; besides appearing very secondary Peter Onorati in a role as a nasty hit-man . The car races are driven by authentic stunts with spectacular vehicles , being a production by the company General Motors . The film has a lively and atmospheric musical score fitting the action , plus a colorful cinematography . This TV film was well directed by Guy Bee . The motion picture will appeal to frenetic action lovers . Rating : Mediocre but amusing . It's a must for the cars buffs . Well worth seeing .
